Ever feel like there was something important you'd forgotten?

Jonathan Healy and Frances Brown are two of my favorite characters in the InCryptid universe. They're the great-grandparents of the current generation, they're the parents of Alice Healy (later Alice Price-Healy), and they are a joy to write about. I didn't expect to spend as much time with them as I have, but the first story focusing on their part of the timeline appeared in February 2012, and it's not over yet.

Careful readers of the free stories posted on the InCryptid short fiction page may have noticed an odd jump between "No Place Like Home" and "Married In Green," like some grand adventure was missing. Well, that's because it was.

It's not missing anymore.

"Stingers and Strangers" is available now, in the anthology Dead Man's Hand. Find out what happened in that missing stretch, and why it changed the future of the Healy family forever, in more ways than one. Also enjoy a lot more exciting weird West adventure, from some pretty awesome authors.

Dead Man's Hand is available now in the US, and May 30th in the UK. It's a really good book. I'm really thrilled to be a part of it...and more, I'm thrilled to have that missing story finally see the light of day.

We're almost to the end of the trail.
